30 August 2011. Ferrara, Italy, my hometown. After a year travelling around the Asian sub-continent I spent the last month of my trip in Europe visiting family and friends. It was a nice welcome back.
Ferrara is a lovely little town in the heart of the “Pianura Padana”and surrounded by foggy plants. It is jewel of the Renaissance period, a quiet small city still unspotted by many tourists.
Every year, during the last 2 weeks of August the council organizes the Buskers festival where street artists, coming from all over the world, are invited to perform a diverse range of music and dance throughout the city centre and thousand and thousand of spectator, coming from different part of Italy, are attending the shows.
I thought to be so fortunate to be there for that this period of the year. I cannot remember when was the last time a saw this of show in my town, maybe 10 years ago? Yes it was nice, I enjoyed it so much, so my son Luca…: maybe because we are gypsy ourselves and we loved to be with them, sitting on the floor around the Estensi Castle all night long.
